Bargain Wine Alert – World Market Case Sale
World Market Cost Plus is currently having a wine case sale, with 30% off all their wines. You can choose one wine or mix-and-match all the wines to get the wine case sale price. The sale ends on April 4, 2017. I took advantage of this case sale, mostly with their sparkling wine. Standout prices for the Gruet Brut, Segura Viudas Reserva and the Roederer Estate Brut are about the lowest you will find these sparkling wines at Costco or any wine shop or supermarket. If you mix-or-match a case, the prices for these wines are as follows:
- Gruet Brut – $11.99 – Average Price* – $16
- Roederer Estate Brut Anderson Valley – $16.49 – Average Price – $20
- Segura Viudas Brut – $6.99 – Average Price – $10
The trick for buyers in these sales is to look for the “Loss Leader,” the wines at rock -bottom prices to get you into the store. There were other wines at World Market that were no bargain indeed. They were priced quite high. For example, one of my favorite bargain white wines is the Dry Creek Vineyard Fume Blanc. I have found it at the Safeway for as low as $8.99. According to Wine-Searcher, the average retail price around California is $13. Take a look at World Market’s case price for this wine.
A few other very excellent wine bargains I found at the World Market Cost Plus wine case sale were:
- St. Francis Sonoma Chardonnay – $9.09, Average Price – $15
- Locations F Red France – $13.98, Average Price – $18
- Honig Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc – $13.29, Average Price – $18
If there is a certain sparkling wine or still wine that you like and you see it at a bargain sale price, take advantage of the case price and stock up for the year. Be sure to cellar your wine properly otherwise it will spoil, and your sale price becomes a loss.
